Fish not eating In nursery tank

Hi one of my golden barbs had this cut on it's side so I have quarnteend it in a 30 litre tank by itself. It's been in there for a week and hasn't eaten. It's healed slightly but it's still an open wound. He's still looking very full and isn't looking hungry but how long should I leave him not eating before I will have to introduce him back into the main tank to get him eating again.

Yikes, I was looking at the top fish. Unfortunately thatís a major wound (think if it was on one of us). Is it healing at all? Iíd be leaving him in QT for a while. And looking at antibiotics if not healing / getting bloated / redness developing.

I agree with Delapool. I'll add......Start with aquarium salt. 1 TEAspoon per 5 gallons of water.
